ok i have figured out how to update the intel ac-3165 driver to the latest version from the intel website.
apparently there was some bug in the intel pro-set wireless software on my ezbook 3 pro that was preventing me from updating the driver.
if you are having a similar problem this is what you can do:
go to add or remove programs
select intel proset wireless software
it updated correctly – the driver from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199
my wireless is operating slightly faster on average (only by a few mbps) however i’m more interested in connectivity quality – i will update accordingly.
once updating you driver i would double check your driver power management and computer power management settings to make sure that the ‘allow computer to turn off wireless device’ is disabled.October 7, 2017 at 4:03 am #73119George GParticipant

You can also go here and follow the directions:
Note that the download is valid for the products listed at the bottom of the page. The AC 3165 is listed there.December 23, 2017 at 4:33 pm #76112LiamParticipant

Disabling Bluetooth seems to improve wireless performance for me.January 27, 2018 at 12:13 am #77801kean3DParticipant

same thing with the v6, got wifi problems too, first fixed by update ac-3165 drivers with the microsoft one found on the list in drivers update
then reboot and back apply the latest one from intel, and wifi become now stable ..
so, searching some updated drivers, i found with drivermax a new updated drivers for ac-3165
which is dated: 4 dec 2017 version: 188.8.131.52
installed and this is so better, signal is pretty constant, no disconnection at all 😉April 9, 2018 at 12:57 pm #141676
As nice a full metal case is, it is also a Faraday cage
So inside antennas need to be mounted where they at least have a chance to get a bit of a signal out.
I once got for my Galaxy s5 a nice aluminum frame, so glass in front and plastic in back.
It took me a while to figure out that this slim frame was the source of my very bad GPS reception.
Same happened with an identical frame and a Note3.
So a very simple solution is, disable the internal card via device manager and get yourself a tiny usb wifi stick.
You know the fun you always having when you do a new OS install and a standard intel chip wifi modul does not install. So not going to the internet and not collecting a working driver. For that situation I got a 2$ usb wifi stick. plugged it in and windows installed the driver within a second. Then I could got to the internet and do a driver download for all the no shows.
The 2 good things an external wifi has, reception and security, if you unplug it – no internet connection.April 28, 2018 at 9:45 am #142427DennisParticipant

Hey together, I also have huge connection Problems.
The connection cuts and cuts and cuts… I can´t download anything, because than connectio gets lost and I ve to start again….
Is there any solution at the moment? I don´t want to pluf in a wireless stick. I want to use the internal card if possible.
Driver at the moment is the 184.108.40.206
So please help me out.April 28, 2018 at 3:06 pm #142436
simple, figure out if it distance related , or where it sits, or switch off bluetooth, in short go figure it out – you are the only one near your computer.May 15, 2018 at 1:20 pm #143046NeoParticipant

why is my download speed so poor on 2.4GHz? upload speeds are fine. 5GHz is fine and what I am using at home, but out and about that is not always a choice. not my network as other devices pulling down proper speeds over 2.4GHz. are they separate antennas? on latest intel driver.May 16, 2018 at 5:30 pm #143067
yes 2 antennas go to different points on pc.
2.4GHz lots of interferenceDecember 31, 2018 at 4:25 am #149665DDParticipant

Tried Intel latest driver but failed badly. Last night I let windows searched for driver itself and that version is pretty stable so far. Going to test it further using other wifi networks later.
